Synopsis
A man learns the hard way just how bad he's been to his girlfriend in this independent drama laced with dark humor. Conrad (Michael Rodrick) is a high-strung, impulsive man who shares a home with his fiancée, Jennifer (Debbie Rochon). While their relationship has not always been cordial, Conrad crosses a line when he discovers a pornographic videotape has been left at his front door -- and that Jennifer is the female lead in the movie. A violent quarrel follows, ending with Conrad raping Jennifer. Furious, Jennifer soon gets revenge by cutting off Conrad's penis with a pair of scissors, and then holding his member for ransom. While Conrad is told by a surgeon that his penis could possibly be reattached, Jennifer wants 10,000 dollars for the organ, money he doesn't have, and he discovers she fully intends to use this situation to settle a large number of old scores. Nowhere Man also features a cameo appearance from Troma Team Pictures head Lloyd Kaufman in a rare non-comic role. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Chutzpah has a new--perhaps permanent--definition: NOWHERE MAN, an execrable would-be drama, would-be comedy, would-be satire, would-be goof/spoof, would-be Troma-type gore fest (Lloyd Kaufman even has a small role). So many would-be's and not a single be. The height of chutzpah is achieved via outtakes used during the end credits--to what has already been one long outtake in itself. Without these dumber-than-usual add-ons, the film would have rolled in at just 70 minutes. With them, it stretches out the insult to 80.

Jumping off (and crashing) from the John and Lorena Bobitt tale, the movie plays it mostly straight (very badly) but occasionally veers into leaden satire, which is even worse. The two leads could very possibly be decent actors. But not here. Technically the movie sucks, too, which leaves it without a single redeeming feature. Now that I rethink for a moment, I must admit my earlier mistake: The tip-top height of chutzpah is that fact that this film actually received a theatrical release. Imagine the poor schnooks who paid movie-theatre prices!
